Bank receives first Fitch rating

Bank receives first Fitch rating

Auswide Bank has announced that it has received a first-time credit rating of BBB+/F2 (long term/short term) with a stable outlook from Fitch Ratings.

The rating is the first Auswide Bank has had from Fitch, after it withdrew its last rating from Standard & Poor’s (which was a BBB-/A-3 rating with a stable outlook).

Managing director Martin Barrett said that the Fitch rating was a testament to the strength of the bank, including its “robust capital, strong risk management processes and sound asset quality”.

The bank added that the dual rating, which includes Moody’s rating of Baa2/P2 (stable outlook), provides a “strong platform to maintain growth in the bank’s residential, business and consumer finance lending”.
